To utilize a VPN connection on your Roku streaming stick, it’s important to note that it doesn’t have built-in VPN functionality.

  • Skip this step if you already have a US Roku account.
  • On your VPN-connected computer or mobile device, go to your browser and set up a US Roku account.
  • When you are asked to choose your country, set it to United States.
  • When it asks you to enter a ZIP code, use an American ZIP code with 5 digits. Examples: 90210, 10005, 92803.
  • Factory reset your Roku by pressing and holding the Reset button on the back of your Roku for 15 seconds.
  • When your Roku starts up again, log in with your new US Roku account.
